Nintendo relies on third parties for mature content; asks gamers for support

It should come as no surprise, but Nintendo wants you to buy more of their games — more specifically the mature titles.

Speaking with MTV, public relation phenom Reggie Fils-Aimé talked out about why he thinks third-party devs need to continue to put mature titles out for their systems and why gamers need to start opening their wallets and not just their mouths.

“It’s a priority for us bringing a range of entertainment,” he said. “It’s a priority for us to have a range of third party licensees see success on the platform. It’s a priority for us to make sure that every consumer has content that they’re going to enjoy.”

“Now, the challenge for us is that we, ourselves, Nintendo, don’t create that type of content. We’re not experts at it. Our developers don’t particularly enjoy making that content. They probably could make stellar content, if they chose to. [Miyamoto and Halo anyone?] We choose to do something else. So it really is up to the third party developer to create that great content and bring it to life on the platform.”

Fils-Aimé then went on to list a variety of mature games that were solid titles but just didn’t perform in the marketplace, such as The Conduit and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. His advice to consumers is “go out there and buy it and support it” if you want to see more of it.

This pep talk comes after the wake of big name publishers such as Sega and EA having discontent with the way mature titles were performing on the Wii.
